What can you use the app for?

Promopipe offers users a fun, colorful atmosphere to check out daily deals and purchase deep discount promotions from local businesses. The site works just like other group buying websites. The user checks out a deal, decides to buy it, and gets the discount. Although it may sound a little backwards to have to pay for a discount, it can really work. The amount paid is generally less than half of what the user would pay without the deal. Promo Pipe focuses on the San Francisco, South Bay, and Peninsula areas. All businesses featured on Promopipe are located in or around these communities.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Promopipe was created to give users around San Francisco the chance to take advantage of deep discounts through group buying. The site offers the same list of features and functions as similar sites for other areas. Today, Promopipe is still serving the San Francisco community by offering many deep discounts negotiated with local businesses. The consumer gets a discount and the business gets an opportunity to grow its customer base.

What are the differences to other apps?

Promopipe is not much different from other social buying sites in terms of function. The site presents all of the same laundry list of must have features for this type of site. However, where it stands out is in the available deals and location it serves. Promo Pipe is specific to the San Francisco, Peninsula and Bay Areas. Users can find a whole new collection of deals for a unique list of businesses in those areas on Promopipe.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Promopipe website features many fun colors with stylish icons and a unique logo that give it a personality all its own. Although the color scheme is generally bright, the site also uses a plain white background to offset the “busy” nature of orange, green, and blue. The result is a complimentary set of design elements that work together to create site that is easy to navigate. All the main locations are prominently displayed on the homepage so a new user can get started without any trouble.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can register for Promopipe by clicking the light orange “Log-in / Sign-Up” link at the top right hand corner of the page, within the orange header. A pop up box appears and requests a username, first and last names, password, email address, and zip code. After entering the information, the user can click the blue “Signup” button at the bottom of the box to finish registration. Users are also given the option of registering through an existing Facebook profile.

What does it cost to use the application?

Promopipe gives users many ways to spend money, but simply visiting the site isn’t one of them. Anyone can create an account and begin using Promopipe and not pay a dime for the opportunity. There are no other features that would justify a monthly subscription fee or premium account access, anyway. That being said, users can still spend a significant amount of money on Promo Pipe. It all depends on how often they buy the deals listed. The user is in complete control of the amount of money they spend on the site.

Who would you recommend the application to?

The site could be ideal for anyone that is low on cash, but would prefer to not sacrifice their recreational time. Users can enjoy a dinner out or other activities for less than half the regular price by purchasing Promopipe deals. There are lots of group buying websites and Promopipe doesn't seem to be active anymore. You can better visit one of the other daily deal services.
